CONVENIENCE STORE BURGLARS SEEM READY FOR THEIR CLOSE-UP

Date: March 16, 2017        PIO Number: 17-3-19

Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives are asking for the public’s help to identify two burglars captured by security cameras, despite their attempts to disable them, just before 4 a.m. Jan. 6 at the Country Food Store at 815 S. Dixie Highway in Pompano Beach.

The thieves used a brick to smash the front window and glass door of the convenience store. Once inside, they ripped three video cameras from the walls before heading behind the counter. The men initially struggled with the cash register but were eventually able to yank it free. They also stole thousands of lottery tickets, several phone cards, some cellphone accessories, cigarettes and cash. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact Broward Sheriff’s Office Det. Joel Rivero at 954-786-4210. If you wish to remain anonymous, contact Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or online at browardcrimestoppers.org. Anonymous tips that lead to an arrest are eligible for a reward of up to $3,000.
